I’d like to meet knitters in all of these places

…or really, I’d just plain like to meet people in these places. Knitting optional.

Neato.

I think there’s a bit of a Coke-commercial-vibe going on here, and a few questions are popping up in my head (like, would this video have the same effect if it was somebody besides a white guy?) but I still think this is darned cool. That’s a lot of the world in a short little video.

I hope your Friday is a good one!

  1. I’m not gonna lie, that totally made me tear up. Awesome!

  2. I saw that awhile back on Jason’s blog, watched it several times, totally blew me away, love it!

  3. This is so cool! I’d be lucky to go to half the places he’s gone!

    I found out about this video when Yarnagogo posted it, and I think it’s pretty cool–but I’ve go a couple lingering questions, too. The biggest negative is, I think, the gum company sponsorship. I suppose it would be idealistic to imagine that one might be able to do all the travelling etc necessary without corporate (or private, I suppose) sponsorship, or that an organization might sponsor him without turning him into a walking advertisement, but it does remove more than a little bit of the ‘magic’ for me.

    Yesterday I found this related video, which made me LOL heartily–hope it has the same effect on you!

  5. Wow! Very cool. I especially like India where he joined in their choreography. A reminder that the world is a beautiful place and so are the people in it (the majority of them anyway). What a lucky guy to visit so many places. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Ditto Annette and Melanie. Thanks so much for the link!

    That was awesome! You could do something similar with a bunch of people waving half knit socks, no?

    It kind of reminds me of my brother’s Spanish teacher, Mario. Everywhere he travels, he gets a photo of himself plus everyone around him jumping in the air. He has tons of them.
